Wroclaw Open ATP Tennis Tournament Cancelled

The ATP tennis tour will not come to Wroclaw this year as the 2018 Wrocław Open has been cancelled. 

The competition, which normally takes place in February and March, has been completely free of charge for spectators.

As an ATP Challenger event, the top ranked players in the world were forbidden from entering the tournament.

However last year Polish number one and Wimbledon semi-finalist Jerzy Janowicz took part, as did grand slam double doubles champion Łukasz Kubot. Unfortunately the cancellation of the Wrocław Open means tennis fans will not have the chance to see those players perform here this year.

According to tuwroclaw.com, the event had to be cancelled due to worries over finance.

The Wrocław Open could nonetheless return in 2019, as the organisers are intending to find the backers and sponsors required to make the event financially viable next year.
